He'll get used to it after awhile. I have to clean up more messes from my pup when it rains as well. Just something that happens.
wait a second.. it SNOWED in TX???? now that would have to have been a blizzard snow simply because snow does not last in TX???Just take him out, wait him out and deal with it.
They learn fast. I can remeber booting my puppy out in the snow and ice. He learned to potty ASAP and would come screeching up the walk and up the steps to get back inside.
How long were you out there? If he doesn't go then bring him back inside and either crate him or tether him to you - don't give him a chance to go inside. Give him 15 minutes inside then go back out there in the rain. Just keep doing this - he's going to go eventually. Once he does every subsequent trip is easier.I'm having a problem with my dog and the rain. He is five months old. First, when he was younger, I took him outside and stood with him in the rain, whether or not he liked it and I waited in my raincoat with an umbrella until he did his business.
He still held it in and had accidents in the house.
I still have to frog-march the dog outside when it rains and watch from the sliding glass door to see if he has done anything and then allow him inside the house. I make him go outside, whether he likes it or not.
He still goes inside and has accidents either immediately or later, so I keep him in the kitchen until I am satisfied that he has most probably done all of his business.
At five months, except for the rain which is a work in progress, he is pretty much completely housetrained and once we get over this rainy weather stuff, he will be fine!!
I brought this pup home the week before Christmas, and that year we got a lot of ice/freezing rain and some snow. So yep, it can happen.wait a second.. it SNOWED in TX???? now that would have to have been a blizzard snow simply because snow does not last in TX???
